Welcome to the Department of Communication Studies

alt="Communication Studies"

We believe cultural, social, & personal experiences improve through more effective understanding & practice of communication.

Communication Studies seeks to understand communication and to improve its practice in a variety of relationships. We focus on two person and family communication, communication in small groups and in large organizations, communication across communities, the nature of language and symbols, and the nature of argument and persuasion in political settings and in social movements. Communication Studies will maintain graduate programs that are ranked in the top five nationally and maintain high standards for both graduate and undergraduate teaching.
